Summer 2006 is the second year of the Ipswich Essex Explorer, a shuttle bus service that takes visitors from the Ipswich Train Station to some of the North Shore’s most incredible destinations. Previously, these destinations were only available visitors who had personal transporation. Now, however, visitors may enjoy the area car-free and explore the abundance of recreational, cultural and historic attractions here.
The Explorer service is provided by the Cape Ann Transportation Authority in Gloucester, MA. It is funded by grants from the Suburban Mobility Committee of the Boston Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism.
